Bunheads Season 1 Review “The Astronaut and the Ballerina”

It’s a bit of an unusual move, for  Bunheads  to cast real-life siblings Sutton and Hunter Foster as in-show siblings Michelle and Scotty; despite both having long and successful stage careers, they have yet to act together, which seems ridiculous once you see their chemistry  in “The Astronaut  and the Ballerina.” Scotty’s arrival, after an eerily familiar spur-of-the-moment marriage, is the best part of this episode, which is filled with pretty-good parts. Beyond just the quickie marriage aspect, it quickly becomes clear that Scotty and Michelle are essentially each others’ shadows. Their scenes together are sparkling at first, and when they take a turn towards the confrontational, after Scotty undermines her authority with her students, the energy is sustained, and their climactic fight, followed immediately with recuperation in song form, was one of the best things I’ve ever seen this show do.
